Are you a young person living or studying in Plymouth Sutton & Devonport, due to complete year 10, 11, 12 or 13 before the summer holiday?
After the success of last year’s summer school, I’m excited to be hosting my second annual two day summer school this July and I hope you’ll consider applying.
Our city is full of talented and hardworking young people, but they don’t always get their voices heard. My summer school will bring together speakers from across the political spectrum, as well as inspirational community leaders, with the aim of giving young people in Plymouth the skills and confidence to make change nationally and locally.
I will be there for both days running various sessions, and my hope is that young people will come away brimming with ideas about how to get involved with supporting their communities, and how to campaign on issues that are important to them.
The summer school will be held at the University of Plymouth on 27-28 July. So that travel costs aren’t a barrier to participation, free Dayrider tickets will be available from Citybus.
Here is a taster of what you can expect:
- Panel of local Councillors from all parties, talking about their experiences
- Panel of local community builders, discussing how you can make a difference in your community
- A talk on how to communicate effectively in politics
Activities and workshops on:
- Public speaking
- Social media
- Speech writing
